Abstract:
In February and March 2016 Ironbridge Archaeology undertook an archaeological watching brief during investigation works at the Iron Bridge, Shropshire. The investigation works included the excavation of seven trial holes in the deck, including trial removal of caulking, measurements, inspection, levels and reinstatement. Nothing particularly unexpected was uncovered during the archaeological watching brief. Nevertheless, the current programme of works has provided an excellent insight into the form and location of services located on the Iron Bridge, and has served to identify instances of historic repair. It has also been particularly useful in investigating the nature and extent of caulking and sealants utilised during waterproofing works to the gaps between the deck plates on the main arch and the deck plate upstands on the side arches in the 1970s. The entire process of removing the deck surface material, identifying, sampling and removing the caulking material was recorded in detail.
